May be one of the most highly expectedDSLRs, as well as most widely rumored cameras, of the last somemonths, the Nikon D800 is eventually functionary.
On its substantial 36.3-megapixelfull-frame FX sensor, Nikon is purposing the D800 at the higher endof the market, namely professionals and top-end enthusiasts. Thecompany is eager to point out that it is not a substitution for theNikon D700, but will sit beside it.
This is of course Nikon's second DSLRdeclaration of 2012, with the flagship Nikon D4 arriving only acouple of weeks ago. The D800 utilizes many of the novel boast of theD4 in a smaller body and at a cheaper price point.
These have the same EXPEED 3 processor,the similar Multi-Cam 3500 FX auto focus system which proffers 51auto focus points and the similar 91k pixel metering system. It iseven capable of focusing right down to -2 EV, which paired on itsability to shoot at up to ISO 25,600, should create this a promisingcamera for its low-light shooting.
The D700 does not characteristic avideo mode, but the D800 takes Full HD functionality. It can record1080p video at 30, 25 and 24fps frame rates, along on 60 and 50fpsrates at 720p for shooting slow-motion movies. Both FX and DX cropsare usable in video mode, while the D800 lacks the D4's useful novel1920 x 1080 crop mode.
In another update above the D700, theD800 boasts dual memory card slots. Dissimilar the D4, the D800creates usage of existing memory card formats, namely Compact Flashand SD. The decision to consist two formats might prove mildlyfrustrating for few pros, who will today have to carry two differentsets of cards.
Altogether, Nikon claims to haveconsisted 36 novel characteristics or improvements to this completeframe DSLR camera, when compared to the D700, and is even introducinga novel battery grip which is compatible on multiple types of Nikonbatteries.
The D800 will be usable in 2 editions:a 'standard' body, add a particular edition, called the D800E. Thiswill have the anti-aliasing filter removed, but comes with an extrapremium like a result.Removing the filter lets for a possiblygreater amount of detail to be resolved, and is a characteristic mostgenerally detected with medium-format cameras, which Nikon is clearlypurposing to target on this most recent free.
But this arrives at the price ofincreasing the chances of false color or moiré patterning. This typeof noise is relatively straightforward to delete in photo-editingsoftware packages, such like Lightroom 4. Nikon's own Capture NX2 caneven be applied to reduce or remove the effect, and will arrivebundled with the D800E.
